I'm playing in my first 36 hole event this Saturday as part of my home club's annual tournament. Tee off for the morning round at 7.20am, break for lunch, then back into it at 12.30pm.

 

Any tips/advice out there from guys who have walked the 36 in one day? Considering my diet during a round currently consists of no breakfast, a couple of Powerades, a Snickers and 15 ciggies I'm thinking that will be the main thing I'll need to change. Was also thinking about a change of shoes / socks for the second round...

Keep the fluids up especially during the first round.

Change of socks and jocks at half time feels good.

Beware of chafe.

Yeah I was thinking I'd wear the hamstring warmer skin things I used to wear at footy to help prevent the chafe

Maybe a banana or two added to the bag, I have walked 36 holes in a day and just made sure I had enough fluid and food/snacks. I would not worry about spare socks or shoes unless the shoes are not worn in. Take a charger for the gps if it does not last more than 18 holes

Ha, usually one per hole apart from the par 3's. Stupid habit.

 

I've picked up my script for Champix to try again to get off the bloody things starting Monday. Having said that, after 2 rounds on Saturday and a Last Man Standing at my Cricket club on Sunday, I don't think I'll want to look at another one for quite some time anyway.

It's even worse if you have to wait all the time. Find myself always sparking up, even on the par3s. 

I bet you don't smoke 15 during the second round though. It's pretty hard to keep up that sort of pace for 9 or 10 hours :)

Change clubs after 18....just to "test" yourself. ;-))

JOKING

Perhaps change shoes and socks if you have spare pair and have breakfast and lunch.
